hell no to larry brown, if he ever was an option

he's the absolute worst coach when it comes to developing players and will skip town in a season or two regardless of results

My choices are Stan Van Gundy or someone else. I don't like George Karl, he's a lot like 'Antoni for me. He's been the enemy since the mid 90's beating us in the playoff with Seattle, it would be very hard for me to root for that guy as the Lakers coach, like it is to root for 'Antoni. I don't know that I could ever really feel like he's part of the franchise because of the history, and I know these aren't good reasons but that's how I feel.

I didn't vote for Jeff Van Gundy because I don't think he's coming back to coaching so I don't think it's realistic. I do like SVG though, that would be my choice. After that I picked someone else as in if Thibs quits in Chicago or something.

Tom Thibodeau NEEDS to be our next coach. Great coach...and he has a great sense of humor as well. He would be wonderful here. Please, Chicago...let him go!!! He is the only great coach I see us getting.

Then give Phil Jackson a front office position, and allow Jeanie/Phil and Mitch to make the basketball decisions going forward. God, why didn't Dr. Buss make Jeanie the owner....he was a brillant owner, and the best ever, bnut WTF was he thinking with not putting Jeanie as the head? Dumb move!

:man10: ..... I felt the same way about Phil.... Arrogant jerk that taunted us during the 90 series.....

Karl isn't my first choice but he's the most likely choice given what I've heard about the desire to be exiting again. The Van Gundy's would be a great team but I'm not sure JVG will coach again.

Phil Jackson is not coming back in any official capacity associated with the Lakers. Fans really need to let it go and move on.

Jeff Van Gundy was my choise. I really think he would bring the defense principles that we need and most of all I think he would bring a great, fun personality to this Lakers team

Can't vote on the poll until I see who we draft.. if we draft a PG, Scott becomes a better choice than he would be right now.. He has a history of turning young PG's into stars (Kidd, CP3, Kyrie) & then getting fired after they reach their potential. Not sure he's a better PG coach than D'antoni, but if we HAVE to pick someone from the poll & we draft a PG, I choose Scott.. If we end up with Embiid somehow I think we should give Rambis a shot at the HC job with Phil pulling the strings. If we draft a wing like Wiggins or Parker I honestly have no idea which of those guys would be best. All 3 scenarios assume we also get Love in 2015.. Rambis running the triangle with Kobe/Love/Embiid would be a nice throwback.

Who is obsessing?


The people who bring up Phil in any thread about management and coaching.
My friends who keep on saying management needs to bring back Phil.
The various comments on the Lakers Facebook page.
Various posters on Lakersground.
Various posters at LakersNation.
etc etc

So because someone makes a comment about it, they're obsessed? I'm certainly not obsessed it's just something I want that I think has a chance at happening.

You're exaggerating with your use of the word "obsession".

It's the combination and repeated "Bring back Phil!" comments throughout the broader Laker community (not just at CL) ever since he left in 2011 that's making it an obsession.

Not a single post, from a one member, in a particular laker-related forum that's making me use that term.

I disagree just the same....as long as the Buss's are involved, Phil will be involved. He is after all, family.

Fans want more of Jeanie's voice and that happens via Phil. Phil also has made it known that he would like an executive position.

Fans keep calling for it, cause it makes just too much damn sense to ignore. Its an obsession cause its a legitimate reality.

Well you used the term after quoting me after I made a pro - bring back Phil post.

Obviously I'm going to be a bit defensive. :man10:

How does it make sense? He's never made personnel moves, hired coaches, made financial decisions.... Or been a "stately" sort that you typically want...... Oh.. Never mind that the Lakers have never had that position.

I would dread a return to the triangle..... It's only worked at this level with Kobe and Michael....

All we need is a public power play in the front office...... On a Family owned team. Phil's public zen stuff playing out in the press..... Yeah, that will make us an attractive destination.

If it's a ceremonial thing...... Cast a statue.

Fair enough

I will say that I love what he has done for this organization, I just think we need a clear break from his era and move on.

I think there's plenty of room for him in the front office even just as a PR move. Even if it's just to put a face on the FO that fans can trust.

See, for some reason, I don't even want that.

I feel like him and his brother-in-law are going to have a constant antagonistic relationship that will not be good for the franchise.I mean I already get the feeling it's like that, but I think you compound it if you give Phil any real power.
